Chicagolandia
Ultra-Foods is another of those amazing local chains (IN & IL), and this morning, they moved up a notch in my esteem. I had emailed them after hearing that they would accept expired coupons. Never willing to trust that a store would actually have a policy of that, I finally got a response.
I'm still speechless. They do accept coupons up to 30 days past their expiration date! How lucky am I? I'm hoping they'll accept a couple (six, actually) coupons that expired back in December. I finally found some winetags, those tricky, elusive coupons I've longed to find. On the tags I found at my somewhat local Dominicks/Safeway, $2 off any cheese purchase of $2.05 or more. And I hunted up 6 of them. That means a whole lotta cheap cheese, and since there is no restriction on flavor, I'm hoping to get the good stuff, too. My neighbor over at the Martha Initiative gave me the idea of Turkey & Havarti Paninis, which have been sounding mighty tasty to me! Also, with the Lent season coming, cheese is a must-have this time of year.
I'll give it a try this week and let you know how it works.

    Hi Annie! At the Ultra I used to frequent (Lombard), their policy was to take coupons up to a year past their expiration. I tried it several times and it worked, so you might want to push your luck at your Ultra. No overage with coupons, though--I've tried that, too. Let me know how it works!


  2. I will, thanks for the heads up!
